Paper Abstract

We present experimental data using an artificial eye in order to show how much astigmatism significantly reduces the quality of the retinal images obtained with a panoptic direct ophthalmoscope with two different magnifications (no magnification and a 6x magnifier. We used an astigmatism correcting device built by our own to see the improvement in the images in case we correct the astigmatism with this device. The images were registered with an Ipad pro. The results show that small amounts of astigmatism do not distort significantly the images with low magnification but once we introduce magnification to the system or increase the magnitude of astigmatism its correction is important, for obtaining good quality images.
